While I haven't seen it, to be honest? some of these influcences were the worst moments in 2013 for me, the blood bath, massive amounts of blood and guts and the cannibal prisoners.

I think they wanted to use it as well in the movie remember Himiko's family buried with her and becoming albinos monsters after they reproduced and eat themselves to survive ?

Oh wow thanks for the comparison screenshots! I love this movie and I honestly never noticed the similarities until now.

You're welcome! I'm glad you've found it interesting :)

Interesting analysis!

I saw the movie after I played the reboot games but I didn't know going in that the movie had an influence on TR13. When I saw the main character use an axe, I was like "Lara! That's Lara!" That combined with the pool of blood scene, I figured there was no way that this could be a coincidence. I looked it up and my suspicions were confirmed.

I think it was a great movie to take inspiration from, as it really captures the feeling of going on an adventure that turns into a horror/survival experience. The movie itself is really good and probably one of my favorite horror films.

Ha, no.

I was actually rooting for the lead towards the end of the descent and actually felt empathetic towards her unlike Lara.

For a game named "Survivor" this would have fitted perfectly! For "Tomb Raider"... No. I do like the first movie though.

whats interesting is i remember camilla saying when they were casting for lara, she was told she'd be voicing a character named "sarah" if she got the part. an obscure piece of trivia but hey
